WHAT IS COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY?
Micro-Skin Needling, also referred to as dermapen collagen induction therapy.
The treatment stimulates the body’s own collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, loose skin and scarring (acne, chicken pox, surgical or accidental scarring). Our medical grade, electronic dermastamp device uses super fine sterile needles which creates hundreds of microscopic channels into the skin at controlled depths from 0.25mm to 1mm.
Treatment is comfortable and causes little downtime

HOW DOES SKIN NEEDLING WORK ?
Skin Needling uses a sterile dermapen (9-12 needles) which are very fine and can be of lengths from 0.1mm to 2mm long
The dermapen is passed across the skin causing a numerous micro-punctures to the layers of the skin, these stimulate the body to produce its own collagen.
Clinical studies show that there is a 400% increase in the production of healthy, elastic classes of collagen.
The eventual process results in tighter skin, less lines and wrinkles with a softening and reduction in scarring. The skin also becomes thicker.
Mainly used on the face, this procedure can be carried out anywhere on the body, such as on stretch marks, surgical or traumatic scars and is effective on all skin types.
A home use dermaroller – short needles – can be beneficial for several months following “in clinic” treatments in conjunction with an appropriate skincare regime to both promote and maintain rejuvenation results.
The needles on our medical rollers used for our “in-clinic” treatments reach the papillary dermal layer of the skin. This is where both elastin and collagen fibres are to be found (see illustration).
Cosmetic rollers (used for home use), however, only penetrate to a low level in the skin (epidermis) where they assist in the absorbing of topical ingredients. As soon as the skin heals, these tiny punctures close up and become invisible very quickly.
Skin preparation the application of vitamin A and C creams may be recommended for up to 4 weeks prior to the start of the treatments.
Treatment sessions with medical grade rollers take between 10 – 20 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Pain should be minimal due to the application of the numbing cream ; however you may still feel some discomfort. The skin will be pink or red in appearance following treatment, with some minor bleeding and bruising possible, depending on the length of needle used for your treatment.
Recovery may take 24 hours or up to a few days; most people should however be able to return to work the following day. Potential complications include minor flaking or dryness of the skin, with scab formation in rare cases. Hyperpigmentation is a very rare occurrence and usually clears up after a month. If you are prone to cold sores, you might experience a flare-up after treatment. (We recommend you seek a prescription for your usual cold sore treatment from your GP before treatment)
It can take between 4 – 8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue over the following months, with a gradual improvement.
Even after a single treatment there can be a noticeable improvement, but we recommend a programme of six treatments every four to six weeks in order to achieve the most optimal results. The specific number of sessions required will depend on the area being treated and the severity of the problem, as well as the level of natural response from the clients body
